FOUNDERS DANKWOOD IMPERIAL RED IPA AGED IN BOURBON

On tap at The Oath, wondrous ‘alchemy of wood and hops’ leaves initial molasses-sapped bourbon vanilla sweetness upon sharp IPA fruiting, resinous pine lacquer, charred oak tannins and rosy floral aromatics. Boozy whiskey, sherry and cedar-chipped rum tones provide lightly lingered alcohol burn to bourbon-soaked orange peel, pineapple, peach, cherry and red grape tang as well as tertiary coconut, marshmallow and pecan snips.

FOUNDERS BACKSTAGE SERIES #9 SMOKED PORTER

Advertised beechwood-smoked malts and oak-smoked wheat malts gain light peat splendor, but the real underlying force is the fudgy brown and black chocolate sweetness contrasting against the woody earth-scorched dark roast hop char. Smoked mocha molasses richness picks up wispy hickory and cherrywood sentiments as well as dried cocoa, seared walnut and burnt caramel undertones.

FOUNDERS SUMATRA MOUNTAIN BROWN

On tap at Amazing Grapes, fascinatingly decadent cola-hued Imperial Brown Ale benefits greatly from expressive Sumatra coffee influx. Bold coffee berry penetration receives bitter dark-roasted hop intensity to enhance mesmerizing coffee bean theme. Creamy milk-sugared caramel latte sweetness contrasts nutty black coffee pungency as light black pepper influence lingers. Fudgy black chocolate, vanilla, espresso and cocoa tones provide solid support alongside subtler hazelnut, pecan and walnut illusions.

FOUNDERS NITRO RUBAEUS

On tap at End Of Elm, superb nitro-injected framboise draught perfectly complements original Rubaeus, retaining its pinkish ruby hue while gaining a sourer raspberry-rotted rasp to go against the syrupy raspberry soda sweetness above pale white wheat malting (picking up reluctant sour-candied raspberry, cranberry and crabapple tartness at the delicate Seltzer-watered raspberry finish).
